Here are a few examples of some familiar and not so familiar citations from APA. Also when working with peer review materials versus non-peer reviewed it is good to designate the items.
APA CITATIONS FOR PUBLICATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS: PEER REVIEW AND NON-PEER REVIEW
In today’s environment of multi-media and social media presentations and publications many questions arise as to how to document our writings, speeches, and other research oriented materials.
Here are a few examples of some of the types of APA citations that may be useful in documenting our research and presentation efforts. In addition, while the citations for peer reviewed articles and presentations are not different in format from non-peer reviewed it is sound practice to notate this distinction when possible. In resumes, bibliographies, and annual reports it is often advantageous to list peer-review materials in one section and non-peer review materials in another.
APA citation examples:

This fall the Chicago School in Los Angeles has seen an increase in the student body as we continue to grow our programs and campus community. With more students in Los Angeles and additional students from Westwood and Irvine campus’ using the resources in the LA library, we have encountered higher concentrations of students using our facilities at any given time. The library staff wishes to provide the highest possible service to our campus community to the best of our ability. With the increased use of the library, we ask that library patrons be respectful of resources available and other students who might need those resources as well.
We would like to ask students to be mindful of the needs of other students during periods of heavy activity and courteously to share computer access when possible. Our campus peak times are usually around the lunch time break period.
Also as the campus grows, for security reasons, we ask that you do not leave personal belongings in the library for extended periods of time. If you intend to leave the library for more than 5-10 minutes, please make sure that you take your belongings with you. This ensures the highest security for you and provides other students access to our resources.
Thanks for your cooperation,
Once again we are offering one-on-one training sessions for students. These are half-hour sessions where you get to work with a librarian. These sessions can be tailored to your needs.
